13 Fun Slime Ideas13 Fun Slime Ideas

Last week Natures Garden had so much fun creating scented slime!  It was a day of slime making that I personally will never forget!  Today, let’s look at some fun slime ideas for all of the slime makers out.  Below, we are going to share some of our very favorite scented slimes using some of our most popular slime scents!  We will look at some of the key ingredients used in slime.  In addition, we will talk about some of the fun decorative things you can do with slime.  We also look at coloring options for slime making.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: A Basic Slime Recipe

Before we look at our 13 fun slime ideas or ways to jazz up your slime, let’s talk about the ingredients and some slime making basics.  First, you will need glue and shaving cream.  In addition, you will need borax and water.  Finally, the fun stuff!  You will need color, scent, and fragrance oil.

Creating the Borax SolutionA Basic Slime Recipe:  Creating the Borax Solution

First, you will need to create a borax solution.  In a bullet bottle, add 8 ounces of warm water.  Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of borax.  Place a disc lid on top, in the closed position.  Then, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together.  Set this aside, for now, we will come back to it.

Mixing the Glue and Shaving CreamA Basic Slime Recipe:  Mixing the Glue and Shaving Cream

We found that we like adding shaving cream to ours to give our slime a nice fluffy look.  However, if you are using clear glue, you will not want to do this.  Your slime will not remain clear.  In deep mixing bowl, add one cup of Elmer’s Glue.  Then, add about two cups of shaving cream.  Use your hands to mix everything together.

Adding the Fragrance Oil and ColorA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Fragrance Oil and Color

Now, we will add color and scent.  These two ingredients can be added right to the glue/shaving cream mixture.  Once you have added the scent and color, mix everything together.  When choosing a color you have a couple of options.  You can use either the FUN Soap Colorants or Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  When scenting your slime, you want to make sure you use a body safe fragrance oil and do not go over the maximum usage rate found on the IFRA certificate for that fragrance oil.  The IFRA certificate can be found in the description of each fragrance oil.

Adding the Borax Solution to the Other IngredientsA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Borax Solution to the Other Ingredients

Now, you will need the borax solution you created.  Add a small amount of the borax solution to the bowl containing your glue mixture.  Then, mix everything together.  Continue to add small amounts of the borax solution and mixing until you have a fluffy slime consistency.  However, be careful not to add too much of the solution.  If you add too much, you slime will not stretch.  If you do not add enough, however, it will be too sticky.  Once you create your slime, you can package it in these jars and lids.

A Basic Slime Recipe: Decorating Your Slime

You have several options when it comes to decorations.  You can add glitter, slime charms, beads, and confetti.  The sky is the limit.  Below, we will show you some of the ways we decorated our slime to give it a fun twist.  We took into consideration the scent that we were using when creating the slime and had so much fun making scented slime!

Yummy Gummy Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Yummy Gummy Slime

First, we have the Yummy Gummy Slime.  This slime recipe uses Natures Garden’s Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil.  So, what does the Yummy Gummy scent smell like?  If you guessed gummy bears you would be correct.  Keep reading for a little more about this scent.  This slime uses green glitter to color the clear glue slime.  In addition, we added gummy bear charms that pair perfectly with this fun candy aroma!  How did we make this slime?  We started with a basic slime recipe.  Then, we added the scent and some bright neon green glitter.  Once everything was mixed together, we added the adorable little gummy bears.

These gummy candies are a favorite of so many.  This gummy candy is bursting with fruity flavor and goodness.  The top notes of this fragrance oil include orange, peach, and lemon.  Those top notes are followed by middle notes of coconut, raspberry, and grape that lead to base notes of plum, pear, and a sweet vanilla.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: Bacon Slime

Next, we have the bacon slime created at Natures Garden.  This slime was created using white glue and shaving cream.  It was then scented with bacon fragrance oil.  Once we created the slime, we divided our slime into three equal portions.  Each portion was placed into its own bowl.  Then, we colored our slime.  One of the three bowls was left uncolored.  One was colored with our red oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  To the third bowl, we added just a tiny bit of red oxide and a drop or two of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  We mixed the colorant into each bowl, washing our hands in between mixing so we didn’t mix the colors.  Once we had the slime colored, we stretched the slime out and layered it.  Then, we placed it in the jar.

Now, we have a blue raspberry slushie slime recipe to talk about.  This is another slime that uses white glue and shaving cream.  Once we created the actual slime and added the blue raspberry scent, we added some sparkle.  How did we make this slime sparkle like an ice cold slushie?  We added a few teaspoons of the Diamond Dust mica pigment from Natures Garden.  We also added about 5 drops or so of the blue Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Once we had everything mixed together, we added some ice blue slime beads to give the slime some texture.
